This is great. Though my Dad was a physician, he owned a farm in east TX. We went down there every weekend. One Christmas he gave me a full grown donkey, and for a couple of weeks the entire neighborhood kids had a blast riding her. We took her to the 80 acre farm, and turned her loose. The farm was well fenced, and on the next trip she was gone. We thought she had been stolen, but she could have jumped the fence. She never showed up again. I later found out they are good fence jumpers. Donkeys are wonderful animals.

Years ago when I worked as a Deputy Sheriff in Shawnee County, we tackled the same problem Lawrence is having. Massage parlors operating as fronts for prostitution in trailers near Forbes Field on South Topeka Blvd. . Home rule resolutions where put into place, and undercover deputies were sent in to them. It took a while before these bogus businesses were closed, and legitimate massage businesses continued to operate. Due to my age I have used a legitimate massage therapist in Lawrence for over 20 years. She is well trained, and does a great job in keeping me going. I find it ironic that Lawrence has no way to protect legitimate well trained therapists, such as she, and let anyone hang up a massage therapist sign. It pleases me to see such pending city ordinance affecting this problem, but it should be on the state level. I hope someday it is. True well trained massage therapists are in favor of licensing and protection of law.

I never heard such hogwash. Even retired officers, such is myself, would not stand by and let someone be injured or killed. Common sense should be exercised, a trait all cops should have, as to to whether to intervene or not.

Interesting information, some of it is new to me. This issue has a lot of twists and turns, like a huge corn maze. We are being over taxed, my opinion as retired and living on a fixed income. Paying taxes for keeping criminals locked up, good first responders, and public safety issues are the absolute last things I bitch about normally. I just want to make certain we are really at the point where this is absolutely necessary. We are slowly being taxed off of the property we worked all our lives to be able to retire to.

I was told that making people use their real name, would solve these types of problems.

I think an M.D., with pain management training, should be consulted on cases requiring narcotic pain drugs. They are specially trained for this.

We are fortunate to have a plastic surgeon from the KC area as our new governor. So far he seems to be doing a fine job, time will tell.

I believe every school should have trained school resource officers (SRO). A trained peace officer with the intestinal fortitude to do their job forthwith. If there is a shortage of active officers, we have many retired peace officers and retired vets who could do the job. Protecting our children should be our top priority.

A great argument for mandatory retirement.

Yes, they belong together and would be if they had obeyed the law.
